Yazidi and Hindu Similarity

Yazidis are in news for a grave situation in northern Iraq. They are being literally exterminated by the Islamic State Jihadis. Only 7,00,000 or so Yazidis remain on the planet today and most of them are in the northern provinces of Iraq near Kurdistan. 1000s have died already this year and their mass killing via siege, starvation and other means is gut wrenching.

The world is watching without doing much to save this extremely rare race. #SaveYazidis cry on the social media is not having much effect as 10s of 1000s of them are on the verge of extinction or capture into slavery by the extreme radicals of ISIS. The situation of women and children starving to death has created an uproar across the world, but not much help is coming forward.


While researching into who these Yazidi people are, I stumbled upon some unmistakable similarity with Hindus of India. Two hours back, I didn't know much, but after putting these side by side, I am almost getting convinced that these Yazidis are a lost tribe linked to ancient Hindus of India. The overlapping features are clearly not some coincidences that you will find among pre-Abrahamic religions of the world.

Yazidis kiss a peacock shaped lamp.
Hindus light a peacock shaped lamp.


 Yazidis temples have pyramid shaped gopura just like Hindu temples.


Yazidis symbol is a wing spread peacock, just like Hindu god Shiva's son, Subrahmanya's mount. The most important point to note is that peacock, the national bird of India, is a native of south and south east Asia or Africa. Not found in the area of Iraq or Syria at all.


Yazidi mural on wall of their holy Lalish temple is unmistakably Hindu. You can see saree, which is an unofficial national dress of India.


Yazidi temple at Lalish has snake symbol at the entrance. You won't find this among other tribes of Arabia or Mesopotamia. For Hindus, Subrahmanya is the other avatara of snakes and worshiped very closely for all snake related pujas like Naga Panchami.


Yellow sun Yazidi symbol 21 rays.
Number 21 is sacred to Hindus (Ganesha). Offerings are in 21 count like Modaka (sweet).


Yazidi marry within their castes like Murids, Sheikhs and Pirs.
Hindus marry within castes.  Yazidis could have something like Gotra system (researching).


Any Hindu with even basic understanding of aarti plate, will see Yazidis as their own.


Yazidis believe in continuous rebirth and reincarnation.
Same as Hindu Punar Janma concept.

Yazidis do not circumcise, a very rare thing in the middle east.
Hindus do not circumcise.

Yazidis pray with folded hands. Hindus pray very similarly to their Gods and Goddesses.
Yazidis pray at sun rise and sun set, just like Hindus. Both face the rising or setting sun when praying to sun.


Yazidis have a symbol similar to Bindi or Tilak during temple prayer, very similar to Hindu forehead custom.


For big celebrations, lighting lamp by females common to both Yazidis and Hindus.


Yazidis men worship Melek Taus by lighting fire in temples.
Hindus' do similar fire based worship to their Gods, with high regard for agni the fire.


As I read and browse, there are more similarities popping up. The trident (Shiva's trishula), the vessels used during worship (kalasha), the sound (something like dhol and shankha), sun worship methods and much more..

I am convinced that they ARE deeply connected to ancient Hindu civilization. Whether through Zoroastrian connection in Persia (today's Iran) or directly via migration, has to be researched. If you find credible sources, please share them in the comments.

And most importantly, please put pressure on the Indian, Iraqi, US, EU and other governments to save them. They have just a few days between life and death, at the current barbarism level of ISIS. Let this very rare and ancient tribe of our earth survive.

    2. THE YAZIDI - HINDU MYTH

      Yazidis having Hindu links is nothing more than a HOAX!

      Yazidis have most of their roots to Zoroastrianism, pre-Islamic Mesopotamian (present day Iraq) and Assyrian traditions.

      Their idea of fire worship is mostly centered around Zoroastrianism whose prime ideology of worship revolves around the fire.

      Just because some of their practices are similar to Hindus does not mean their whole Ideology is from Hinduism.

      One can find some practices and similarities on between almost all the religions on the earth. That merely does not necessarily mean, that one religion might have inspired from the other.

      Yazidism is a MONOTHEISTIC relgion unlike Hinduism.

      Yazidis believe that the fallen angel called LUCIFER in Christianity, IBLIS in Islam, commonly called as SATAN in English or SHAYTAAN in Arabic, who rebelled against God for now bowing to ADAM, is actually a mediator between God and Humanity.

      When the Hindu scriptures do not say anything about Adam and eve, which Christianity, Islam and Judaism believes, how come Yazidis are ancient Hindu religion?

      Arguably, the Yazidi worship what Christians or Muslims might call “Satan”, though the Yazidi call him “Melek Taus”, and he appears in the form of a peacock angel.

      Why might Melek Taus be “the devil”? For a start, the Yazidi believe the peacock angel led a rebellion in heaven: clearly echoing the story of Lucifer, cast into Hell by the Christian God.

      Also, the very word "Melek" is cognate with "Moloch", the name of a Biblical demon – who demanded human sacrifice.

      The avian imagery of Melek Taus likewise indicates a demonic aspect. The Yazidi come from the ancient lands of Sumeria and Assyria, in modern-day Turkey, Iraq and Kurdistan. Sumerian gods were often cruel, and equipped with beaks and wings. Birdlike. Three thousand years ago the Assyrians worshipped flying demons, spirits of the desert wind. One was the scaly-winged demon in The Exorcist: Pazuzu.

      The Yazidi reverence for birds – and snakes – also appears to be extremely old. Excavations at ancient Catalhoyuk, in Turkey, show that the people there revered bird-gods as long ago as 7000BC. Even older is Gobekli Tepe, a megalithic site near Sanliurfa, in Kurdish Turkey (Sanliurfa was once a stronghold of Yazidism). The extraordinary temple of Gobekli Tepe boasts carvings of winged birdmen, and images of buzzards and serpents.


      Clearly, It has no roots to HINDUISM BY ANY MEANS!

      Moreover, Yazidis do circumcision like Jews and Muslims, while the Hindus don't.

      Yazidis eat meat, sacrifice sheep, goats and chickens during their festivals, while Hindus don't.

      Yazidis bury the dead bodies unlike Hindus who burn it!

      So, to conclude, Yazidism has no link to Hinduism

    3. Ban Azhar! It's the third time this vacuous has posted this comment, and will continue ad infinitum if he's not banned.

      Typical cortically subilluminated moslem with madarsa educated brain conducting jihad in the comments section, while his brothers are exterminating the Yezidis in Iraq. What was it that suddenly woke up the sleeping Muhammad inside you? Didn't you read the heading of the article, you twit? The author is merely pointing out (some of) the similarities between Hindus and the Yezidis, and not once has he claimed the Yezidis being none but Hindus, nor does anyone else in the comments section say so - they are only speculating a seemingly obvious link between the two faiths. But, you found it necessary to refute a self-assumed claim with your Islamic bigotry - that's exactly how Koran corrupts a healthy mind and installs separatist attitude.

      Now, I don't have enough time to educate you about the monotheistic base of Hinduism, or the concept of Adam in Hinduism, or the requirement of circumcision in Yezidism, but I'd go ahead and advise you to voice against your moslem brothers killing the Yezidis, instead of wasting your time on posting halal certified drivel on public forums.

    4. LOL. BAN OF STATING OUT THE FACTS!

      That means rather than refuting, you want to run away!

      "Adam in Hinduism"! REALLY?

      EVIDENCE SPEAKS LOUDER THAN CLAIMS.

      Why can't you provide sources with authentic references from the Hindu scriptures if so!

      Semitic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam firmly believe that Adam and Eve were first humans created and who believed in ONE GOD who has no image and do not believed in IDOL WORSHIP. The whole story of Adam and Eve of disobeying God and eating the forbidden fruit is clearly mentioned in Jewish, Christian and Islamic scriptures.

      Not only Adam, their sons, Abel and Cain, marrying their sisters for generation. Stories of the prophets after Adam, Enoch (called Idris in Arabic), Noah (Nuh in Arabic), Hud (Hud - Pronounced same), Abraham (Ibrahim in Arabic), Ishmael (Ismaeil in Arabic), Moses (Musa in Arabic), Jesus (Isa in Arabic) are clearly explained in Semitic religions who followed Adam.

      Does Hinduism say these things?

    6. // Yazidis eat meat, sacrifice sheep, goats and chickens during their festivals, while Hindus don't.

      Yazidis bury the dead bodies unlike Hindus who burn it!

      Hinduism in not monotheism

      Peacock is not Demon in hindu tradition and hindus do not have demons //

      Says who? Correct your facts!!

      Hinduism IS "monotheism" where every thing is a form of the ultimate only God called "Parabramham" . Everybody and everything is the form of the omnipresent parabramham.

      Hindus do practice burying the dead. Burning is just one of the practice, but they also practice burying dead in the land and getting the corpses drowned, etc etc

      Hindus do practice giving sacrifices in festivals. Ever seen any festival in South India or Sacrifice in kolkatta kali temple?

      The peacock was a Demon called Soora, who was at first very good and close to God that he got many boons from him. He later turned bad, waged a war on heaven and captivated the angels. Subramaniya fought back the demon. In the final stage of the war the demon was split by Subramaniya using his spear. But subramaniya took pity on the demon's plea and revived him by turning one half of the body to a peacock and the other half to a rooster and had him as his vehicle and flag respectively.

      All the facts given above are explained in the same way in "Skanda purana" and a ancient tamil literature called "thiru murugu aatrupadai" which is expected to be around 5000 years old.

      Now does it make Yazidis and Hindus more connected?

    7. The Abrahamic Faith claims God for itself and goes by its undependable Traditions of Hebrew semite literature. From Adam and Eve and Tree to Flood -are all millenniums previous to that Bible version that simply copied and made its own versions of circulating old Pagan literature of Sumerians and Egyptian myths. Noah's story you will see its original in Utnapishim and his building of ark to escape wrath of En Lil. The tale of Gilgamesh and Inanna about Tree of heavan with a snake dragon and Owl (death and destruction) are inperfectly translated by Bible writers. Monothiesm also is bunkum- Abraham prayed to El Homin not yahewh who clearly tells Moses previous generations were not told his name. El Homin is Pleural. It denotes the Starry night sky firmament. Monotheism is a political device of Oppression of all people centralizing around a Tyrannical God idea.The Original Israelites were pantheists and Polytheists as archaeology shows and survived well into 2nd century AD. Greek has no word at all for God-like El Homin the Dius is pleural- the gods. Moses story imports idea of yahweh only and fanatical genocides as practice of Faith. Yahweh before that was a Yemeni volcano mountain god with a wife. Patriarchial Abrahamic rewriting happened for Political power gains.You can check how Moses breaks the original laws that forbade killing of fellow humans-Thou Shall Not Kill. he breaks the Tablets! Then orders Levite soldiers to massacre his brothren for worshipping 'false gods' ! That is Pattern of behaviour the poster rants against Yezis. Thou sahll not covet anothers' wife also gets over written by scoundrels-'its permissible-they are right hand possesions'. Entire Abrahamic Monothiesm is works of such fanatical minds that brazenly violate both common sense given by God, humanism, and establishes in his name aweful ideas like taking captives of other peoples' women, killing children ( "they are of their own"ie enemies) , slavery and such nauseating barbarous ideas. This is actually the Revolt of Satanical ideas against God. It asks them to fight own brothers, slay humanity, impose such twisted ideas and kill and get killed as Best among Paths.'One- God My God' idea is the only Satan- while childish people can practise satanical ideas doing violence rapine loot and genocides as Way to Divine life. In Yezidi faith Peacock is symbol of victory over Materialism and human Lower nature. It is Victory of Divine ideas of Love, universal brotherhood, celebration of life as a gift, hope and peaceful living. In hindusim Peacock is a demon that was slayed- as a symbol Man' Egoism and Ignorance of his own divine nature.By Skanda Kartikeya. Other than this gross Ignorance of man and his barbrism there are no satans. Peacock wins over such demonical tendencies in man becomes the Peacock Angel- a bird of Beauty, Peacefulness and Love. Peacock also slays the Snake which is also venerated by yezidi. That is the real Snake of hatred, Poisonous ideas, conflict with humanity celebrated as Jihad. That snake will surely be defanged. When Arabs stop believing in hallucinations of a man and win back their real divine nature within,stop hating and fighting because of such snake ideas- they will return to Wisdom of their El Ohmin. Their Original faith of ancestors that taught them to live peacefully together as one humanity.Following the verses of hate - of a just one man- they are in revolt against the Heavan creating Hell on earth. They are the Satan's Rebels against Love that is called by so many names as God. It goes without saying this Rebellion will lead to hell on earth as we see in all muslim lands.

    8. @ Murli daran

      Thanks for the Info!

      To be honest, that story of "Soora" really made sense. Though I can agree that the concept of worship of Image pertaining to peacock can be of ancient Indian influence, the whole concept of evolution of mankind from Adam and Eve and disobedience of the Lucifer / Iblis / Satan in bowing to Adam and Eve is an Abrahamic religious concept!

      Also, there are other practices in the Yazidi religion which I feel is alien to ancient Indian / Hindu beliefs such as, Baptizing - a Christian practice, Fasting and Circumcision - a Judaism and Islamic practice.

      Yazidis beliefs also have been said to have been influenced from the Moon-worshipping city of Harran, which in turn preserved traditions from Babylonian religion.

      I appreciate you for bringing out the facts of ancient Hindu practices of animal sacrifice. However, apart from Indians, Mesopotamian and Greek civilizations practiced animal sacrifice too!

      Burying was a common practice of almost all religions and of almost all civilizations of the world and that I think does not necessary to be of a Hindu or ancient Indian influence!

      I believe that the Yazidis, apart from Hinduism, have elements from religions like Assyrian religions, Judaism and Christianity as well!

      I am really convinced by the arguments put forth. I am sorry If I had been harsh and rigorous. NO HARD FEELINGS :-)

      Cheers all.

    9. Hi Azhar Uddin,

      The practices like baptizing, fasting are done by Hindus too..but not Circumcision ...

      Baptizing is a lost practice in Hinduism where in the holy dipping is done in river and not in a bath like in Christianity.. Nowadays its not practiced, but there are many people who fast in Hinduism too. Their fasting are mostly shorter than the fasting done in Islam but there are few Hindus who do it seriously for whole day..

      As with Moon-worshipping , the Hinduism too have it. Lord shiva who is said to the father of Lord Subramaniya (the one who kills the devil and coverts into peacock and cock flag) is also called as Chandrasekara. Chandra means Moon. Google 'Lord Shiva' and you are see a crescent moon over the head of Lord Shiva. Moon is also one of the most influential celestial being in Hindu Astrology. Many practices relating to moon worship have lessened in number but if one looks closer into Hinduism you can find the crescent moon worship in Hinduism too..

      Another similarity I would like to point out is the Star of David.
      Lord Subramaniya (also known as Skanda, Murugan) is usually worshiped in the form of sitting over the peacock (subduing the demon Soorapadman who was once good but later becoming bad) and Rooster flag (the other half of the same demon) and the symbol of Lord Subramaniya is a Six Pointed Star which is popularly known in the west as Star of David. Hence He is also called as Aarumugam meaning six faces.

      The other name of Subramaniya is 'Kumaran'.. .. Subramaniya is also considered to become a saintly figure later on (called Siddha) and started living in caves over hills. You can google the name 'Palaniandavar' where in you will find Subramaniya is being worshipped as a saint with wearing only loin cloth, living in cave over an hill..

      Now, notice the name 'Kumaran' being similar with 'Qumran'.. Qumran is the artificial cave found in Judaean desert where esoteric practices are believed to be carried on.. Similarly Subramaniya also lived in cave over an hill and believed to perform esoteric activities.

      We can count many number of similarities between Hinduism and Yazidi.. To be specific the similarities are between 'South Indian Hindusim' and 'Yazidi'..

      Why I say so is, Subramaniya and many other things noted above are connected only with South India but not with the North India. If you closely observe Hinduism you can point out that North India and South India has different forms of Hinduism but people don't know this and think all of India follow same form of Hinduism.

      Thus concluding that Southern Hindu traditions undoubtedly have many similarities with Yazidi..

    11. There is an interesting story regarding Kartikeya and his older brother Ganesha (in N.India he is the younger brother). When Karthikeya lost the competition against Ganesha he was very angry with his parents. He accused his parents for siding with Ganesha and left his father, Aadi Dev, Shiva (first god, Shiva) and his mother Parvati. Later on I think he repents for his anger. Somewhat similar to Yezedi's peacock god getting upset with his creator and later repents for that .

    12. Dear Azhar,

      I fail to understand your criticism against this well researched article. The author is highlighting glaring similarities and there is nothing for you to feel insecure. This is the beauty of our culture that we welcome all such discussions not seen with western religions.

      Yezidis could be an extension of Indian culture and got corrupted with time and place. Even we accept that our culture has got changed with time.

      Some may claim that Arabs were also following what we were following in India, before commissioning of Islam (hold your BP, it is just a view ). You people circum ambulate seven times around Kaabaa, although anti clock, kiss black stone (Sang-e-aswadh), wear unstitched white dhotie, shave your head. Aswadh could be a corrupt version of Sanskrit 'ashwet' meaning non white. Anything is possible.

      The Indian culture being the oldest surviving culture in the world could have covered land beyond current boundaries. Your Moosaa/Moses have mention in the name of Matsyaavataar.

      Please observe that I have not used the word Hindu or religion as these are not native words this word came in 14th century, only. Our texts mention of entire world( may be known world) and not few lands.

      Tomorrow you may say that you are a pure blood descendant Muslim from Saudi Arabia and not a convert but that is not the truth.

      The palani(Pazhani) temple was built by Bogar
      Who Visited China too or himself may be a Chinees and later his disciple Pulipani sithar =Nath) (Puli means tiger in Tamil)(aga Vyaghrapada aga Viyagiramar ) taken care of temple duties and his another diciple Korakkar( Gorakhnath-(Nepal)) gone to north India .

      Pulipani's (aga Vyaghrapada aga Viyagiramar) disciple Patanjali (Yoga famaous) who also had written " Charana Shrungarahita Stotram" on Nataraja at Chitambaram, TamilNadu.

      And also we have reference about Ramadevar (Aga Yakup ) who visited middle east (Mecca). His story and events were similar (meditating 10 yrs continously and disciples waiting etc) to Bodhidharma (Who visited China).

    3. In Tamil literature five types of lands are seen. They are Kurinji (mountainous region), Mullai (forest region), Marutham (agricultural region), Neithal (coastal region) and Palai (desert region).


      Separate gods for these land types are clearly told in Sangam literature. According to the literature Lord Muruga is the god of mountainous region, Lord Vishnu is the god of forest region, Lord Indra was the god of agricultural land, Lord Varuna is the god of coastal region and Lord Kali is the god of desert region.

      The six abodes of Muruga are Tirupparamkunram, Thiruchendur, Thiruavinankudi, Swamimalai, Thiruthani, Pazhamudircholai.

      Arupadaiveedu

      The six temples are located at:

      Thirupparamkunram : Located on the outskirts of Madurai on a hillock where Kartikeya married Indra's daughter Deivanai. Nakkeerar worshipped Muruga in this shrine and is said to have worshiped Lord Shiva here as Parangirinathar.
      Tiruchendur : Located on the sea-shore near Tuticorin amongst the remains of Gandhamadana Parvatam or Santhanamalai (Sandal Mountain). The temple commemorates the place where Muruga worshiped Shiva and won a decisive victory over demon Soorapadman.
      Palani : Located south east of Coimbatore, the temple is build on a hill top where Muruga resided after his feud with his family over a divine fruit. The main deity is made out of an amalgam of nine minerals popularly called Navabashana.
      Swamimalai : Located at 5 km from Kumbakonam, the temple is built on an artificial hill. The temple commemorates the incident where Muruga explained the essence of "Om" to his father Shiva.
      Thiruthani : Located near Chennai, Muruga reclaimed his inner peace after waging a war with Asuras and married Valli here.
      Pazhamudircholai : Located on the outskirts of Madurai on a hillock with a holy stream nearby called "Nupura Gangai". Muruga is seen with both his consorts Deivanai and Valli.

    4. Dear Khalil, Yazidi's are one amongst the lost Hindu Tribes, any sane Hindu while reading this Blog in detail and backing this Blog with a brief on-line research into Yazidi Religion, Tradition and Culture will be 100% convinced that Yazidi's are only Hindus who had many Centuries/Millenniums ago had migrated from their Native Lands in South India. Thus all the Yazidi's have a 100% RIGHT to return to India especially when they are being butchered by other Religious Extremist Terrorists. Thus I counsel you in a brotherly fashion to inform all your Yazidi Friends and Relatives to find their way back to their Native Land (India). India is a 100% Secular Country, Freedom for all Religions & practises are guaranteed under the Indian Constitution and moreover this is ware Yazidi's belong. India will be the 100% SAFEST PLACE for Yazidi's in the whole wide World.

There would be some practices reminiscent of Hinduism as you try to prove. However what you call a mural, to me looks like a mere wall painted advertisement for silk sarees. That one pic looks odd as a proof of similarities in religions. About the other proofs you got me curious enough to scourge the net for more reading up.

  13. Not at all surprising. The nomadic, pastoral, bracycephalic, ruddy complexioned, non-proselytizing Aryans were Brahmins (worshipers of Brahma) with an advanced law, astronimcal-navigational, and military science but without agriculture or architecture, who held the Sun to be the living idol of Brahma and all of nature to be his temple, originated from Central Asia. The Dravids or Druids were tall, fair, encycephalic, semites, with advanced agricultural and architectural skills from Mesopatamia, they are the polytheist, idolatrous Lilith (Lalitha) worshiping lost tribes of Israel who refused to bend their knee to the jealous, androgynous God of Abraham and worshiped Vishnu, Shakthi, and Shiva and also experimented with the Kabala that had its origins in Brahmansim. Harried by the Aryans as well as their own apostates who had embraced Yahweh, the Druids scattered from the Ur civiilization in Mesopatamia. Some of them entered the Indo-Gangetic plain, over laying the native Negroids who worshipped Ganapathi, Kali and various forms of Mother Goddesses and among other things, created the Indus Valley Civilization contemproraneous with the Aryan Rig Vedic and Shukla Yajur Vedic periods. The Aryans (the noble or "those who know" the Prathamo Upanishad or the "Covenant of Brahma" given to their patrilineal ancestors, the Saptha Rishis) then over laid the Druids and settled in the Indo-Gangetic Plain, exacting tribute (the fruit of the agricultural and architectural skills of the Druids). The Chief of these Aryas. Bharatha, entered into a treaty with Arya Mihira, the Chief of the tribes of Central Asia that protected the Indo-Gangetic Plain from further invasions in return for tribute. Simultaneously, a "one for all and all for one" treaty of laws and code of chivalry was entered into by all the Aryan Chiefs in the Indo-Gangetic plain. Here began the joyous tones of the Krishna Yajur Veda fueled by plenty and welded the Aryans of the Indo-Gangetic plains into a formidable force that kept India free of invasions and adventurers including other Aryan tribes till Ashoka dismantled the treaty of Bharatha. The Krishna Yajur Veda was succeeded by the decadence of the Sama Veda that gave rise to classical Indian music. Subsequently, the Atharva Veda included Dravidian agriculture, temple worship, architecture and so on through the Agama (that which came from outside) Shastras. This saw the formation of the Dravido-Aryan civilization with the Dravidians and Aryans freely inter marrying till Ashoka drove Brahmanism together with the Vedas, Guru Kulas, and Brahma Suthras under ground, and destroyed and looted the temples and other Dravido-Aryan institutions, persecuting them in revenge for having been declared an out caste. This ossified the caste system. Till today, orthodox Brahmins look down on the Atharva Veda without really knowing why.

    1. *Alien-Aryans, Idol worship & Religion
      If Aryans were alien then who are the indigenous people of this country. North eastern tribes claim that they are the real habitant(indigenous acc. to UNO) of this country but most of them belongs to mongoloid race. Dravidian belongs to Mediterranean race and we well known about Arab, Turk, Mongol, parse ,Jews ,indo-greek, converted muslim-christian etc. from where they came.Then who is the real native of this country;ape or monkey,isn’t it. Our history is totally biased towards European stereotype,their racial perception that 1st civilization started around the Europe . How foolish we are! Who don’t know about our origin and history at least.

      “Aryan invasion needs reconsideration and that the Indus valley civilization was the joint creation of the Aryans and pre-Aryan inhabitants of India. S.R Rao,the noted archaeologist known for his work on Lothal, has reiterated in his speeches and writings that the people of IVC were multi ethnic. This is suggested by the skeletal remains found in extensive excavations.”

      Our Vedas forbid Idol worship, only it believe in yajna and also agnostic about the creator/creation of universe. Then who started strangely idol worship in Hinduism. May be Aryan/Hinduism was influenced by idol worship of IVC, we can easily identify impact of Ivc over hindu culture. We can see it in Pashupatinath seal found in IVC excavations, still Hindu & tribes of India are worshipping bull,elephant and yogi mudra of lord Pashupatnath (shiva).

      Idol worship is forbidden in most of exist religion except some tribal society. In Hinduism(Vedas) nowhere mention of idol worship, same thing is true about Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Jainism etc. But later on believers of every religion involved in Idol worship specially in medieval time . Here we take an example of Islam, idol worship is strictly prohibited but later on going for HAZ(pilgrimage) in Mecca-Medina and their parikrama(orbital revolution) around square shape mosque is nothing but Idol worship(here square shape mosque is symbol of idol) or a kind of worship .In Christianity burning of candles and offer prayer sitting on bench in front of Jesus-Christ is also a kind of Idol-worship. Same thing is true about remaining of religion.

    2. Ibid. I have already mentioned it. Original inhabitants were negroes. (From Gondwana Land?). The Mongolids are an North Eastern sub group that were alsoe over laid by the Aryans. "Khan" is an Aryan tribal Chief (changed to Khanna by Khans who did not convert to Islam) became "Han" in China. Genghis Khan practised Brahmanism (wrongly called animism) though he has Moslems, Zoroastrians, Manicheans and so on in his court. The "genetic" studies only disprove claims of racial purity i.e. disprove nothing. The cultural span including the local and tones of the different Vedas (the compendium of Aryan experience) and the Shroutha (Heard) and Smartha (remembered) traditional History stand. All the critics have not learned or understood this to disprove it. I am delighted with Kiran's blog here as it corroborates Shroutha Smartha traditional History with cultural roots. Indeed, the myriad religions, many of whom probably have similar beliefs to Yazidi, are united purely by cultural mores creating the illusion of a monolithic religion.

    3. Friend, you bring into your arguments the fantasies woven by fanatical Tamil chauvinists that have been thoroughly disproved, including the Aryan invasion theory. Particularly glaring is your ignorance of geological time-scales. Godwana land existed between 200 and 55 million (20 crore to 5.5 crore) years back. There were no humans then.

  14. (Continued) Adi Shankaracharya revived Sanskrit, and wove the various religions into the Panchayatana (the five deities) comprising the Aryan Sun (idol of Brahma), and merging the Aryan Narayana with the Druid Vishnu, the Aryan Shankara and Rudra with the Druid Shiva, the Aryan Sandhya, Savithri, Saraswathi and Gayathri with the Druid Lalitha Lakshmi, and Parvathi with the tribal Mother Godess into Durga Parameshwari and included the tribal (Negroid) Ganapathi. This might be the origin of "Sanathana Dharma". Subsequently, we had the dark ages of Islamic rule. Comparatively balmy British rule and then the darkest age of the "Indian" Republic that have confused the matter thoroughly for political convenience. The confusion has been fomented by western educated revisionists of the British period who are now venerated as beatified authorities, the hostility of the Republic to all politically inconvenient truths and History, and the fact that no History or Knowledge was written till the Atharva Veda Period and that there were long periods when the Shroutha-Smartha (heard and remembered) Brahmin tradition was driven underground through persecution by Ashoka, other invaders and the Moslems. That the culture, religions and civilization managed to survive and procreat here though eradicated in the places of origin was due to the treaty of Bharatha and the long period of stability enjoyed by the Indo-Gangetic Plain and because of this, in the lands South of the Vindhyas which also aped many of the Dravido-Aryan cultural, social and legal aspects though osmosis and beyond into South East Asia.

    4. Your agreement and disagreement are irrelevant to the truth. Since 1947, the truth has been even more distorted to political convenience than it was after 1917 (out of the British nervousness engendered by the Independence Movement and rooted in the Sepoy Mutiny) . The British had a spirit of earnest, scientific enquiry and learned of the ancient History and the laws and origins of the castes and tribes of India from the Shroutha Smarthas (who ran the Aryan Courts for thousands of years) and documented whatever they thought they could corroborate by their anthopological, cultural, archeological or other "scientific" means as History. It is true that the British, therefore, often sound like me. It is unfortunate that today's youngsters are averse to learning or enquiry and are steeped in the rotten culture created by the Indian Republic. A study of the works of the now defunct Anthopological Survey of India founded by Lord Curzon (probably still available at the British Museum) will give you a taste of research and science that has been lacking in India since 1947. It is also pretty obvious that the detractors here have very shallow knowledge and fall back on popular brain washing and name calling to avoid the onerous task of learning, research and interpretation. I would recommend to them seven -eight years of hard work at Veda Pathashalas of some repute such as Shringeri or Udupi before presuming to float the syncretised opinions of the followers of Nehru, Gandhi, Periyar, Patro, Narayana Guru and the Post 1917 rulers of India (whether British or not) as the "truth"

  17. This is nothing but BULL SHIT! Yazidi is an oldest religion and does not have any roots to Hindusim. Just because they worship Melek Taus in representation of Peacock which Hindus too worship does not mean Yezidi have Hindu roots!

    In truth, the ancient Yazidi religion has elements of both Christianity and Islam at its roots, while it is also linked to one of the world’s oldest monotheistic – the belief in one god, called Zoroastrianism (parsis) which was once a prevelant in Persia (present day Iran).

    Now don't tell me Zoroastrianism too has it's roots to Hinduism

    The Zoroastrians worship the "FIRE". Most of the Yezidi practices of worshiping the fire is from Zoroastrianism and the peacock worship is just the Yezidi depiction of God just like ancient Greeks and Romans used to have their own Greek Gods!

    The Yazidis believe in one god, though they worship seven other “angels” or “spirits”, the most important of which is Malak Taus, or Tausi Melek, whom Yazidis worship five times a day.

    This figure is said to be the Yazidi God’s favourite, and is supposed to act as a mediator between god and man. The figure’s name is also known in Arabic as “Shaytan” or "Satan" in english meaning devil, supposedly because of the closeness of the pronunciation of Malak Taus name in Arabic.

    The Yazidis’ beliefs are a mix of Islam (including Sufism), Christianity (including Gnosticism), Mithraism, Zoroastrian and other pre-Islamic Mesopotamian and Assyrian religious traditions

    It has no damn roots to HINDUISM BY ANY MEANS.

    2. You must read AVESTA the holy book of Zoroastrians.. its almost exactly VEDAS except in their book Devas are Asuras and Asuras are Devas. So yes they are very very much connected and distant cousins of Sanatan Dharma=Hindusim.(best part is its so clearly mentioned in our puranas that these ppl rebelled against Devas and lost and lived beyond the land of Hindu-Kush, no wonder they had to get asylum here... Afterall our cousins who once fought with us and left us is coming back, any Hindu will embrace them with open arms)
      Hindus don't have any central evil figure called shaytan or devil or lucifer. Evil and goodness is a choice a person takes and hence he must live with moral conscience and every act of his must be akin to that conscience... then he will never go the evil path.And you cannot convert into Hindusim actually, but nowadays they do some conversion.
      Some sufi saint I dunno his name .. he reformed most of Yazidis religion in mid century so that Yazidis dont get persecuted.. although they held on to some core beliefs. That's why they have lot of ties with Islam and Judasim too etc.

    6. In ancient Indian texts there are references to people moving out of India. Climatic factors forced people from the dried up sarawathi region to move westwards and eastwards across the asian mainland and some went as far as Spain. Some settled in North West Iran , and they were of the 'chandravanshi' clan. They took with them the early religious practices, connected with fire, offerings and ablution , some of which the yazidis still follow.Early Indian religion was based around these concepts , revolving around the central tenet of "dharma", and one of the main deities was Dharma raja or 'yama' ,( Or otherwise Melek Taus in Yazidi.) Over a thousand years of Abrahamic influence, yazidis have incorporated several of its concepts and beliefs into their religion, but the have retained the core, which is from their ancestoral home, the sarawathi basin.

  18. WHO ARE YAZIDIS?
    Yazidis are the people of kurdish language speaking people. These Kurdish people are basically IRANIAN folks, like our BRAHMINS/ARYANS in India. These Kurdish populated area is spread in four countries now mostly. They are IRAN, IRAQ, TURKEY and SYRIA. These KURDISH people are embracing ISLAM of Sunny and Shiya sects, and some minorities are of Atheists, Christianity, Judaism, Agnosticism, Yazdanism and Zorostriyanism. So the KURDISH people following YAZDANISM are called as Yazidis. Their culture is having some aspects of Hindus in India also. This religion YAZDANISM is having faith on incarnation, deities of both male and female and thus nothing but as equal as HINDUISM. It is incorporating many matters of ISLAM also in it. The religion YAZDANISM is nothing but the combination of religious ideologies of Hindu, ISLAM and some other above said religions and the local religions of IRANIAN Folks. We can say the YAZIDIS now under the problems created by SUNNY Muslims are the BRAHMINS/ARYANS live in IRAQ and following YAZDANISM. Thanks and Regards(!)

  19. @ Prithvi Raj: HA HA. You are perfect example of an IDIOT!

    Judaism, Christianity and Islam are Semitic religions and we believe in the same ONE GOD.

    JEWS CALL BY THE NAME "YAHWEH" (HEBREW WORD FOR GOD), CHRISTIANS CALL HIM FATHER (PART OF HOLY TRINITY) AND MUSLIMS CALL "ALLAH" (ARABIC WORD FOR GOD).

    All our teachings are similar but that does not mean we one copied from the former!

    EVEN CHRISTIANITY CAME AFTER JUDAISM, THAT DOES NOT MEAN CHRISTIANITY IS COPIED FROM JUDAISM! LOL.

    JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM believe in prophets, Adam, Enoch (Idris), Noah (Nuh), Hud (Hud), Abraham (Ibrahim), Lot (Lut), Ishmael (Ismael), Isaac (Ishaq), Joseph (Yusuf), Aaron (Harun), John the Baptist (Yahya), Moses (Musa), Jesus (Isa) and Muhammad

    Jews believe only until MOSES and refuse JESUS and MOHAMMED as prophets, Likewise, Christians believe untill JESUS and refuse MOHAMMED and Muslims believe in all the prophets.

  20. @ Aditi (Shreya): With due respect,

    Zoroastrianism do have some of their texts similar to Vedas, but the basic IDEOLOGY of Zoroastrianism is MONOTHEISTIC UNLIKE HINDUISM

    The Zoroastrians often do not wanted to their religion to be associated with Hinduism because of their monotheistic beliefs. They never worshiped any idol.

    From the words of Zoroastrian scholar.. "We should not follow non-Zoroastrian Gods or Godmen"

    http://tenets.zoroastrianism.com/notfollow.html

    "Hindus don't have any central evil figure called shaytan or devil or lucifer" THAT IS EXACTLY MY POINT!

    Yazidis believe that the fallen angel called LUCIFER in Christianity, IBLIS in Islam, commonly called as SATAN in English or SHAYTAAN in Arabic, who rebelled against God for now bowing to ADAM, is actually a mediator between God and Humanity.

    They call his as "MELEK TAUS" and they say that he is the "PEACOCK ANGEL" head of the 7 other angels.

    When the Hindus do not believe ADAM is the first man created by God, which Christianity and Muslims believe, how can it be from Hinduism?

    THIS IS YAZIDIS VERY FUNDAMENTAL BELIEF!

    They Baptize like the Christians, while Hindus don't!

    Yazidis do circumcision like Jews and Muslims, while Hindus don't!

    Yazidis eat meat and sacrifice sheeps, goats and chicken during their festivals while Hindus don't!

    Yazidis bury the dead bodies unlike Hindus who burn it!

    YOU CANNOT FIND A WORD "HINDUISM" IN THE WHOLE OF WIKIPEDIA ABOUT THE YAZIDI RELIGION!

    THAT IS WHY, YAZIDI HAS NO LINKS TO HINDUSM..!

    Al-Khidr, The Wise Universal Green man, revered as a Sufi Saint is totally different from Islam. There are many such group in Islam and Christianity having peculiar beliefs. Moreover, The Yazidi website mentions Al-Khidr just introduced this concept of the Yazidi worship of Peacock angel to the Templars. Nothing more!

And all other gods are concepts and qualities of parabramha personified..hence, it's common to feel we are polytheistic from an outsider who has no idea about our Hinduism..

    Everyone knows.. Wikipedia is the last site to refer to when someone asks showing proof. Yazidis don't circumcise although few do because of fear of Muslims. They can't even practice they're own religion peaceful in many places, hence all the distortions have taken place within themselves.

      never mind..not interested in any argument with you..
      Every religion on earth is an offshoot from Sanathan dharma.
      Including Islam. thats why you see similiarities.

      -786 is mirror image of OM in devnagari

      -Kaaba was ancient shiva lingam. thats why it still follows hindu customs(white dress and clockwise PRADAKSHINAM)

      -So many Idols of Vishnu/Ganesha/Shiva has been excavated from Russia to Indonesia.

      -Latin american Maya/Inca/aztec are 100% originated from here. Same set of Idols have been excavated from Latin america too..

      -All ancient latin american deities have striking similiarities with indian.. Ex: Chilambalam of latin america worshipped "EMPTINESS" or "AKASHA". Same way as in Chidambaram of Tamiladu. AKASHA is one among the five "PANCHABHOOT"

      -There are ancient structures across globe - Greece -> temple of dodona-Europe/Russia -> Stonehenge.. All are structures of Vedic era

      -All Russian/Europian languages have root at Sanskrit

      Still need proof ?
      Find it out .. Proof is out there ..
      Never expect anyone to give you a certificate of proof.
      You are free to believe it or not.

      It is the zionists who took away all or valuable literature abroad and still keep it in Vatican/Bazel/London museums. We must seize them to get our original manuscripts.

      Nobody wants you to believe. This blog is for people with tolerance and patience to hear others view, which is not part of your grooming. I even feel that I butparast kaafir feel the entire civilised world is influenced by our philosophy, we being the oldest. If you disagree, well, you have an option of quitting.

    HA HA.. "Every religion on earth is an offshoot from Sanathan dharma"

    NARROW MINDED PEOPLE LIKE YOU THINK INDIA IS THE ONLY COUNTRY ON EARTH WHERE PEOPLE LIVED AND CIVILIZATIONS EVOLVED WHILE OTHER PLACES ON EARTH WAS A "NO-MANS LAND"

    WHAT IS THE PROOF?

    WHAT IS THE SOURCE?

    JUST CLAIMING IN AIR BECAUSE HINDUISM IN ONE OF THE OLDEST RELIGIONS!

    "Latin american Maya/Inca/aztec are 100% originated from here. Same set of Idols have been excavated from Latin america too.." REALLY?

    SOURCE PLEASE!

    YOU JUST CAN'T SPEAK ON AIR WITH IRRELEVANT CLAIMS ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE SPEAKING ABOUT THE HISTORY!

    Apart from Indus Valley Civilization, many other civilizations also existed like Mesopotamain, Egyptian, Nubian, Mayan, Chinese, Greek, Romans, Aztecs who followed various religions like SUMERIAN RELIGION, BABYLONIAN RELIGION, ASSYRIAN RELIGION, EGYPTIAN RELIGION, GREEK RELIGION (WHO BELIEVED IN GREEK GODS LIKE ZEUS, ROMAN RELIGION WHO BELIEVED IN ROMAN GODS LIKE JUPITER), ETC.,

    786 IS MIRROR IMAGE OF OM! SO WHAT?!

    THERE IS NO "786" ANYWHERE IN QURAN. IT IS ONLY SOME OF THE INDIAN MUSLIMS ESP. THE SUFI MUSLIMS WHO BELIEVE SO AND NOT MUSLIMS ALL OVER THE WORLD! IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM.

    KABA IS ANCIENT SHIVA LINGA?! LOL..

    THESE ARE ALL STUPID BASELESS THEORIES MADE BY HINDU-CENTRIC INDIAN HISTORIANS LIKE P.N OAK WHO POPPED UP FROM NOWHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF 19TH CENTURY TO PROMOTE HIS BELIEF BY FABRICATED CLAIMS!

    THERE IS NO AUTHENTIC HISTORICAL PROOFS OR EVIDENCES FROM ANY OTHER HISTORIANS TO SUPPORT THIS THEORY.

    HE IS THE ONLY HISTORIAN TO CLAIM SO!

    HE EVEN CLAIMS THAT THE VATICAN CITY TOO WAS A HINDU CITY ONCE WITH HINDU BELIEFS AND JESUS CHRIST WAS A HINDU TOO.

    1. Kabba could very well have been a site for the fertility Gods borrowed from the Assyrian Pro-Indo-European beliefs. Why is that so hard to believe? There was a Goddess Al'Lat, the fertility Goddess who was worshiped at Kabba before Mohammed destroyed it. Granted it might not exactly be Shiva, but probably something skin to it. All PIE religions shared the same root after all. Even your precious Islam plagiarized the many PIE beliefs and mixed it with Judaism.

      AL-lat=ALLAH.

      Answer me this one thing. Why was Mohammed's father's name Abdallah? ie Slave of Allah , if the Allah did not exist before Mohammed miraculously discovered him? Allah is a Arab pagan moon God with Assyrian influence. There is nothing special about Islam. It is a bad plagiarism of a goat herder with delusions of grandeur. But you are probably too brainwashed to think.

    2. @ Champamaar: "COULD VERY WELL HAVE BEEN".

      I SAY AGAIN, THAT DOES NOT MERELY PROVE! YOU GOT TO PROVE WITH AUTHENTIC SOURCES NOT JUST BASED ON YOUR PREJUDICED ASSUPTIONS!

      "AL-LAT = ALLAH!". This show how dumb and stupid you really are!

      ALLAH is just an arabic word for "GOD". Jewish Arabs, Jewish Christians and Pre-Islamic Assyrian religions too used to call "ALLAH" and the Jewish and Christian Arabs still use the word "ALLAH". It merely means GOD.

      Abdullah means (Abd = Slave, Allah = God). which means Slave of Allah. Those are Arabic words. THAT'S IT!

      Allah is not a Pagan Moon God. LOL. Pagans whose language was Arabic used to call their moon GOD as "ALLAH". That means it is their "GOD".

      Kaaba was built by Prophet Abraham and his sons. Years later pagan worshipers used it for Idol worshiping.

      Judaism, Christianity and Islam are Semitic religions and we believe in the same ONE GOD.

      JEWS CALL BY THE NAME "YAHWEH" (HEBREW WORD FOR GOD), CHRISTIANS CALL HIM FATHER (PART OF HOLY TRINITY) AND MUSLIMS CALL "ALLAH" (ARABIC WORD FOR GOD).

      All our teachings are similar except for things that are specifically revealed to the people of that age, but that does not mean the latter copied from the former!

      EVEN CHRISTIANITY CAME AFTER JUDAISM AND TEACHINGS OF CHRISTIANITY IS SIMILAR TO JUDAISM AS WELL THAT DOES NOT MEAN CHRISTIANITY IS COPIED FROM JUDAISM!

      and why should not I use the capital letters? When you have the option in your computer, you gotta use it. It is for a purpose!

  30. Here is another view-point "Another religion to have evolved from a nearby land i.e. Persia/Iran was Zoroastrianism is a contemporary of Hinduism. Both Hinduism & Zoroastrianism were practised by Aryans & both used to give great importance to FIRE. The Nirgun-nirakar God of the Zoroastrians was “Ahura” (Asura for the Hindus/Sindhus). The Zoroastrians & the Hindus/Sindhus belonged to two fiercely contesting sibling tribes/people having common ancestors, just like the Sunnis & Shias in Islam. The “Asuras” mentioned in the vedic scriptures were the Zoroastrians.

    "There are other aspects. What is called a "CHHAND" in Vedas is called a "Zand" in Avesta. I wonder if 'Angre Menyu' (Satan in Zoroastrianism ) referred to 'Manu', a father figure for the rival Huras/Suras!

  34. Quite possible Yazidis are lost Hindu lineage as it is heard that in prehistoric era the whole earth was Hindu, they have a beautiful saying in their Vedas (the oldest human literature known as Shruti) and that is "vasudeva kutum kab" which means the whole universe is one family. How beautiful the thought is :)

    Unlike some illiterate fanatic who kill human beings on the name of GOD, just imagine would God, who has created this earth will ask some fools to kill his own Human Beings.

  38. I was intrigued reading about the similarities in the rituals and symbolism of Yezidi and Hindu faiths. But I find many of the posts here about 'Hinduism being the mother of all faiths' and things of that sort quite outlandish and without basis. Finding a distant link between Yezidi and Hindu faiths doesn't require these fanciful notions. If Yezidi faith is indeed descended from Zoroastrianism, then it IS related to Hinduism. The simple reason being Zoroastrianism and Vedic Hinduism are cousins descended from a common Indo-Iranian faith system, which in turn developed from a common Proto-Indo-European faith thereby linking it to ancient Greek and Norse religions. This is a theory that is well accepted by main stream scholars across the world. Therefore you would find many common ideas across these faiths as a reminder to its shared past. Examples like the concept of two groups of competing deities (Deva/Asura - Indian, Daeva/Ahura- Iranian, Olympians/Titans - Greek, Aesir/Vanir - Norse), the Leader of Gods being associated to Thunder and Lightning (Indra - Indian/Iranian, Zeus - Greek, Thor - Norse). And by the way, it is not just the religion that is linked so, but the languages too. Sanskrit, Persian, Greek and Latin descend from a common Proto-Indo-European language that no longer exist, and the evidence lies in the astoundingly similar sounding words for common concepts in these languages. Its all the result of a great migration of Indo-European/Aryan peoples from their ancient homeland thousands of years ago. Indo-European civilizational links is a fascinating study and is the subject ongoing research by renowned scholars from across the world. Yezidis undoubtedly is one such link of a great family of civilizations that stretched from Greek, Roman, Norse lands to Iran and India.

  39. If Yezidis continue to be under assault by ISIS, India should offer to provide asylum to them and provide land where they can live, build temples and practice their faith free from fear like we did for persecuted Zoroastrians and Tibetan Buddhists. This is something which we definitely can do as we have a strong Hindu nationalist government at the center. No doubt Yezidis will make immense contributions to development of our nation like their cousins, the Zoroastrians, did. Let India be the last, but strong, bastion of persecuted Indo-European faiths across the world.

  41. Hindus Belive in Vasudev Kutumbakam . and we firmly belive that our religion is the oldest way of life . Yazidis are Sanatan Dharma members .

    This can only be understood by a person who is Not a Maleech and is Not a Follower of Sukracharya.(Maleech are the Lowest - Ravans Uncle was a Maleech)

    In Kaliyuga it is suggested not to educated those who are on the side of Maleech and sukracharya followers . The reason there solution is already Born . This is a phase of transition from kaliyuga to satyuga.

    For the Maleechs .. Dajjal will come from Turkey and all fundamentalists will be eliminated by the Dajjal666.

  49. Kiran, your research highlights the similarities between Indian and Yezidi tradition. I can understand living in that region, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam may have impacted their practices over time but the similarities are astounding. More research is needed otherwise this fact will be suppressed by Islamo-fascists as Indian history is systematically being deleted in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

  53. There was a time when all of Arabia was Pagan, just like India. Only there was slightly different flavors. The Yazidi's are still survived, which seems like a miracle. Mohammaden Islam exterminated most of the Pagan Arabia and yet theier own traditions are completely Pagan. Going around the Kabba? Pagan. Kissing the Black Stone? Pagan, Drinking ZamZam Water? Pagan, Going between the Hills? Pagan. As long as you have the concept of 7 days a week, Paganism will live in one form or another. If you want to know more lookup IQ Al Rassoli

  55. The culture of Yazidis is akin to Hindu Tamils of South India. There is no doubt about it. We should remember that History has been written with evidences available at different points of time and also by historians and researchers what reaches their mind. Even the History of India is not complete. It all start with Gupta's and Mourya's of North India. History of S, India has been deliberately or inadvertently sidelined to backgound.
    We have been all along reading in History that sumerians moved east to reach Mohanjo Daro/Harappa civilization and then spread along the gangetic plains. This is what Britishers and Westerner wrote. Suppose if it was the other way round, briefly (to rewrite it) it could be this way also. ow many of Indians heard of Gondwana Land or Lemuria Continent lying south of present day Kanyakumari. which was supposed to have been swollowed by the sea some 5000 years of ago. If that land mass was the cradle of civilization, as Silapathikaram, an ancient Tamil Texts that dates back more than 500o years ago. The present day madurai was restablished around 1500 years ago, but the earlier Madurai was supposed to be located south of Kanyakumari in the Lemuria Continent belong to the !st Sangam Period. If that was true, then during the great deluge, people moved out in different directions, those who went west landed in Africa, further west, the Mayan, and Aztec Civilization, those who when north, landed in sumeria and those who moved still further were those who spoke later day Aramaic language and Yazidi culture/language and lastly those who moved north were the present day tamils and still further north were the Mohanjo Dara / Harappan Civilizations. Remember Aramic language which Jesus spoke and for those who watched the movie 'Passion of Christ' has vocabulary/words similar to the Tamil Words. Just follow the Aramic Language spoken by the Aramaics. Do this without predjudice. If the History written by Britishers and Westerners which you people believe is possible then what I have written above is also possible.

    Rather than trashing, it is worth while to weigh facts in the light of new information with available technology and then resummarize history constructively.

  59. Now terrorists have established a nation called Iraq & Syria Islamic State in short ISIS. This state has armed forces. Armed forces recruits are basically from Iraq & Syria. However they don't have adequate human power for jobs like cleaning, cooking etc. For these jobs they are recruiting girls. Firstly they started with Yazidi girls. However, Yazidi population is meager and the girls are not reliable ISIS thought of Muslim girls. Muslim girls are considered mature once their monthly period starts (MC). Second advantage is minor girls can easily be lured and trusted for all needs of soldiers 24X7. India is having largest population of Muslims in a single nation in the world. Therefore, ISIS can rely on steady supply of staff for supporting armed forces. ISIS has lured some Muslim boys of minor age also. However, girls are more useful and hence in demand. Those who believe in women purity must work for this cause and stop smuggling of minor girls to ISIS. from http://janahitwadi.blogspot.in/2011/07/my-contribution-for-fight-against.html

    In his History of the Jews, the Jewish scholar and theologian Flavius Josephus (37 - 100 A.D.), wrote that the Greek philosopher Aristotle had said: "...These Jews are derived from the Indian philosophers; they are named by the Indians Calani." (Book I:22.)

    Clearchus of Soli wrote, "The Jews descend from the philosophers of India. The philosophers are called in India Calanians and in Syria Jews. The name of their capital is very difficult to pronounce. It is called 'Jerusalem.'"

    "Megasthenes, who was sent to India by Seleucus Nicator, about three hundred years before Christ, and whose accounts from new inquiries are every day acquiring additional credit, says that the Jews 'were an Indian tribe or sect called Kalani...'" (Anacalypsis, by Godfrey Higgins, Vol. I; p. 400.)

  66. Kiran, based on my research I find Yazidis are a branch of the Avestans (later Zoroastrians) who worship the Yazatas (in Avestan the word Yazata means the gods and the goddesses worthy of worship. The Samskrit equivalent is Devatas (gods and goddesses)). Ancient Avestan tradition is an offshoot of the Vedic tradition quite unlike today's Zoroastrianism which is heavily influenced by Islam with many concepts like pravazis reinterpreted as prophets etc. Yazidis in particular seems to be a branch of the Avestans from Iran who somehow had affinity towards Vedic and later Vedic traditions, in comparison to other Avestans who in generally considered the Vedic tradition in hostile terms. In the Puranas the Avestans are described as the Daityas (Daityas were counted among the Asuras along with the Danavas - viz. the Greek heroes of Iliad / Odyssey). There were many Daityas who had affinity with Vedic culture often at variance with the other Daityas. Mahabali is an example who was devoted to Vedic god Vishnu. Similarly there were many Daityas devoted to Karthikeya (Subrahmanya) after the war between Karthikeya and Daitya king Taraka at Kurukshetra. These Daityas allied with Karthikeya after their defeat. I tend to associate the Yaazidis as descendants of these Daityas who worship Kartikeya as their primary deity by looking at their current traditions. Malek Taus is nothing but Vedic god Dyaus - the sky god - similar to Zeus / Jupiter / Indra's father Kashypa
